Farmed in an organic vineyard in East Kelowna, just below Summerhill, the Kurkjian Vineyard Riesling is a dense, powerful and dry style of Riesling much akin to those of the Clare or Eden Valley of Australia.
This unique sub-region of the Okanagan Valley is particularly suited for this noble grape variety. The beauty of Riesling, aside from the fact it’s the most ethereal of the white grapes, is the diversity of wines that Riesling can produce. The deep clay in the soil allows for optimal ripening and results in a wine that is much more on the muscular and intense side of things with laser acid delivering stone fruit, citrus while underlined with true minerality. Sexy petrol notes are starting to form, which makes this wine an interesting cellar candidate. Make sure to buy a few bottles of this wine and watch and enjoy its long evolution ahead.
